Theo Epstein is the World Series MVP
When you win a World Series there is always a lot of credit to be passed around the room. In the case of the Chicago Cubs, it's no different. They had great pitching and timely hitting, no doubt about it...but the MVP is president Theo Epstein. The 42 year old guru ended an 85-year drought back in 2004 when his then Boston Red Sox team won the World Series title. They went on to win again in 2007. Now in Chicago he's made all the right moves for the Cubs, and they break their 108 year World Series Jinx. Think about this: 17 of the 18 players on Chicago's roster are there because of Epstein. What's even more scary is that the Cubs roster is young and not going anywhere. Don't be shocked when the Cubs are favored to repeat next season.
